As one of the small items of furniture, an ottoman is a padded seat which usually has no arms or back. It resembles a footstool or, sometimes, a coffee table. As far as design is concerned, ottomans normally fall into four categories: standard ottomans, pouf ottomans, cocktail ottomans and cube ottomans. In the first category, a robust base supports a cushioned surface. The shape is usually either rectangular or square.
Just as its name suggests, pouf ottomans are puffed units with soft materials inside. The third category resembles a coffee table or a table in general. You may easily place beverages and plates on this type. The last type is used for storage of items as well. Leather and cloth cover the surface and the ottoman features hidden space inside for storage. Generally, ottomans come in one of the following shapes: oval, square, round, rectangle. Each has its own pros and cons.
The rectang shape, for instance, provides a wide surface. The oval shape, however, is known to add a luxurious look to the overall design of your room. In case you are in the market for an ottoman, you should take note of upholstery as well. There are different materials that can cover the surface of an ottoman. In this regard, fabric is known to provide the widest range of texture and color. If you want a more luxurious touch, you probably go for leather. Leather ottomans usually come in brown or black color. For the same purpose, velvet ottomans can also be good choices for adding a classy look to you home design.
You should remember that an ottoman is not a unit in isolation. You should keep in mind the overall mood of your home design. The ottoman should simply 'go with' its surroundings. As far as storage is concerned, different ottomans have different storage methods. Normally though, an ottoman features a lid that lifts off or is hinged on the body. Other ottomans feature drawers for more storage options.
This is preferred when you want the ottoman to hold items such as the remote control to your TV. Size is also an important factor in purchasing an ottoman. An ottoman should not be too small to draw attention or too big to take up much-needed space.
